Farmer Probation Request Denied

A Dothan woman accused of hitting and killing a man at a local grocery store who was arrested again on drug charges is denied probation.

24 year old Tabitha Farmer had been out on bond for murder after allegedly running over 60 year old Larry Downing in January and then testing positive for marijuana.

Farmer was arrested again a week later by Dothan Police who found a glass pipe in her car that tested positive for methamphetamine.

Judge Larry Anderson previously denied her bond stating she's a danger to herself and society.

Friday, Farmer's lawyer asked for probation on her drug charges.

Judge Anderson denied that request.

District Attorney Doug Valeska said, “How many chances does she get, I said she's not a good candidate for probation.”

Farmer will stay in the Houston County Jail awaiting her murder trial.
